And It's a good thing France passed that law. Women wear what women want! Have you ever heard a rapist say "She was asking for it by what she was wearing?" And her answer invariably is "I should be able to wear what I want without some jerk raping me!" Our Courts always side with the woman. No one makes them go around half naked! You have a lot to learn you stupid muslim pig!

Yeah. Sure. Our sisters do not want dogs like you starring at them, sexually harassing them and trying to hit on them. So they refuse to present themselves in public while half naked. But western women are the ones who do not have a choice. They feel they have to sell toothpaste by wearing skimpy swimsuits. Our sisters wear swimsuits too. But only in private or when with other females and no males. It Atlanta and other cities, we have our swimming pools for the children. The boys cannot come while the girls are swimming. We have boys' day one day and girls' day the next. The two genders never mix.

You will never see a Muslim doing these sex commercials on tv. Iman is one of the very few examples. But she can never return home because the sisters would kill her. This is why she really had no choice but to marry a white boy and try to live a mixed life. The men probably do not care. But the women would kill her for dishonoring African womanhood and Islam. She takes her clothes off for money. Now she will never have a home in Africa again. You idiots are too stupid to understand what is really going on here. Nudity is uncivilized. And it is mainly a white western Christian thang. Buddhists, and Muslims do not do that. Non-whites in general do not do it.

Look at art history. You have Mona Lisa and all that. Egyptian women have always worn Hijab even before the Islamic Era. Look at the pictuires. This goes back thousands of years. And it were civilized Africans who did it way back then while whites were half-naked. I think whites can live in the element easier than blacks can. They can take more in terms of extremes in cold or heat.

Anyhow, here are some ancient Egyptian pictures compared to modern Somali pictures

There is no better turn-on than to have the honor to remove a sister's head-dress in private. Few men can have such honor. But anybody can have a white woman any time.

If white is right, then why is everything in nature of color? do you mean white have truth and nature doesnt,?.....now take your pale-horse ass back to iceland.......america is a stolen country......dumb fk.

Yeah. White women are cheap and easy and low compared to our African sisters and daughters. And white dogs will never be able to bring them down to their level. The sisters have always been queens since the beginning of history. White women in this country still are not leaders. Hitlery might get lucky. But she is not a woman. That is why she wears pants all the time: it helps Bill to image she is a boy. Perverts.

If any of you had read the article. It was already investigated by the CA Department of Fair Employment and Housing and found to be an unsubstantiated claim by her.

Likely she was found in violation of something, fired, she disagreed, and trumped up some bogus claim for her law suit.

You are right. These women are so screw up in the head they do not see the damage they do their children by denying them their fathers. Even when we pay child support, it is a struggle just to see the kids. It is a dam shame. What I am going to do is entice my grand-daughter away from her sorryazzz mom. The only reason I have not done it so far is I live alone and spend 90% of my time out and she has been too young to be home alone. But my other son will be sharing a house with me soon. If I could get just one female who had enough sense to maintain a relationship, everything would be cool. But it is a dam shame that none of these women are worth a dang. None of them. I raised three kids without any help at all from women. Now I cannot get my girl because there are no women available. I have wait on my son to move in. Imagine that. When my kids were growing up I actually thought there were no women because I had too many kids, although I had upper middle income. Now I have upper income and all the kids are grown. Now their excuse is I am too old.

The truth is the b-words are usually lesbians or so dogged out that nobody wants them. This society is just about 100% dead and hopeless. This is why I "date out." In the meantime, the kids are suffering. I wish I was a dictator. I would make some harsh laws and put a lot of b-words in jail for a long time and solve this problem. This current situation is nothing short of criminal and perverted.

Yes they are decent until they get brainwashed by the white man to think that they have run around like naked savages to be successful in this society which is about true. White man force women to expose themselves. This society is way over-sexed due to constant stimulation, titiliation and provocation. There is sex everywhere including in church on Sunday mornings. And we wonder why the clergy are 99% perverts.

CFO's aren't that hard to come by.
They are not the first face one sees when doing business with the company.
She could sit back in her office - out of sight - CFO-ing all the live on day.

I don't agree that ethnic dress intimidates.
Maybe the occasional, odd, Klan robe and hoody.

If she was worth a damn as a CFO, I would expect that she could wear a bone thru her nose, with a necklace of shrunken heads. BP is much more about money, than dress codes.

They can always find a blue eyed blond to front for the company on the TV commercials.

The management in the cloistered offices can all look like trolls.

I'm guessing that they had another CFO candidate de jure already in mind.
The ethnic dress thing just handed them a solution to their preferences and whims.

I hope she wears her costume to her job interviews - so that her potential new employers know what they are up against.

Suing a former employer poisons the well.
She can't go back - even if she wins.
If the court judgment is high, the company will appeal - and, starve her out.
Maybe she's trying to sweeten her severance package???
It'll cost her in the long run.
Even if she wins, she'll loose.

As a CFO,(former CFO)- she should know that....

Playing the race card only works when your employer is subject to ethnic leveraging. Oil companies are exempt.
That's what leads me to believe that as CFOs go, she isn't very bright.
It's not like legions of her devoted ethnic sympathizers are going to boycott BP to any effective degree.

It would be amusing to see them try.

I bet that if she had enough sense to get a real job, one that pays decently, in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait or Iran or Syria etc. she would have enough sense to cover herself before the interview.

Right now, I am preparing myself to enter the most prestigious and oldest university in the world either as a teacher or a student or both. But in order to do so, I must do it in Arabic. English will not get it, although the entire staff speaks English. English is an inadequate language for the course materials.

They're in error which is::
Unsubmissive
Unteachable
False doctrines (euro-centric education/negro preachers)
Servants of corruptions (gloria steinem's feminism)
Denfensive arguments
The whole purpose of CIA/FBI backed feminism, was to hijack the blk-power, blk-liberation, blk-nationalist movements and to create divisions beween bm & bw, Lenin said that the way to destroy a people is to destroy the family. Thats why you have the family court system, child-support is big business, it generates hundreds of millions of dollars for the state & non profit orginizations. Bw got nothing out of these feminist, women's movements, but single motherhood, welfare rights, and an unrealistic since of independance, and even after showing them the FBI's role in this , and exposing gloria steinem, michell faith wallace, alice walker, and their anti-bm rhetoric thy sill refuse to let go...now the enemy of truth uses ir bm/ww to inflame their anger towards the bm, and shes being manipulated once again, they focus on her being single, but right now you have 16.6 million ww single, 4.7 million more ww than wm, 70% ir marriages between wm/ asian & latin/w more ww in the work place than wm, more ww in college than wm & bw put together, but their media never mentions this, but bw have told the whole world the biggest lie ever, and they're still doing it.

The next time I get fired just for wearing my white robe and pointy hat to work I'll be sure to alert the media to the blatant discrimination...
